Keith Prince: In response to question 2019/14346, the Mayor stated ‘indeed I would expect private hire companies to make every effort to fulfil bookings they have accepted’. Why is this not a condition of licence?
Keith Prince: In the light of their recent £29,000 fine for two of their drivers driving without insurance whilst still within their probation period, will you now agree that UBER is not a fit and proper company to hold a TfL Licence, and accordingly instruct TfL not to renew their licence?
Keith Prince: Further to your statement in front of Unite the Union demonstrators on 29 August that ‘trade unions have such a massive role in a civilised democracy” why have you refused to honour GMB Union’s request to conduct an Independent Investigation to review why TfL failed to supply critical Tram safety evidence to the Croydon Tram Crash investigators?
Keith Prince: Having previously promised that residents would be able to choose between keeping Gants Hill Library as a library or replacing it with a Hub, the Leader of Redbridge Council is now seeking to renege on his promise to hold a Consultation which gives residents a real choice as to whether they want the hub or retain the library, by not including the option to retain the library in the ongoing...
Keith Prince: Thank you for that, Mr Mayor. It is very helpful. Would you agree, Mr Mayor, that when a politician makes a promise, he or she should keep it?
Keith Prince: Could I ask you, Mr Mayor? I know you are very friendly with Councillor [Jas] Athwal [Leader, Redbridge Council] and that is a good thing. Could I ask you to encourage him to keep the promise that he made to the people of Redbridge that when he did the consultation on the library, one of the options would be that the library be kept as it currently is? The consultation that is out at the...
Keith Prince: The question I put to you again, Mr Mayor, is: will you speak to Councillor Athwal and ask him to redo the consultation with an option to retain the library so that we have a genuine consultation? I am not saying we should keep the library. I am not saying we should not do the hub. I am just asking for a genuine consultation that gives people a choice.
Keith Prince: What you are saying is that you will not lend your support to the people of Redbridge to get a genuine consultation? That is your answer, Mr Mayor?
Keith Prince: Thank you, Mr Mayor. The answer is no. Thank you. There you are, residents. You have heard it. Thank you.
Keith Prince: Given the request for monitoring in the Mayor’s answer to question 2019/8962, will the Mayor now disclose the ratio of ZEC taxis as requested in his refusal to answer question 2019/8963?
Keith Prince: Page 83 of the Fatigue Study reveals that about 5.4% (1353 of about 25000) of TfL Bus Drivers bothered to complete the Loughborough Bus Driver Fatigue Study. Do you feel that this sample size reflects a statistically-valid sample upon which to make policy? Since this small sample size represents less than 10% of Unite the Union’s stated membership of London’s Bus Drivers, does this low...
Keith Prince: TfL’s Press Release about the Loughborough University Study of Bus Driver Fatigue stated it "was commissioned by TfL in response to Unite the Union's work to highlight the complex issue,” Please provide me with copies of all studies, data, analyses of Bus Driver Fatigue produced by Unite the Union which might, theoretically, constitute Unite the Union’s “work".
Keith Prince: TfL’s Press Release about the Loughborough University Study of Bus Driver Fatigue stated it "was commissioned by TfL in response to Unite the Union's work to highlight the complex issue,” A review of the 10 Tripartite Meetings between TfL, Bus Operators and Unite the Union between November 2015 and April 2018 released under FOI (https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/tripartite_meetings)...
Keith Prince: Given the deaths and serous injuries which have resulted from TfL’s well-evidenced failure to manage fatigue across its Tram and Bus Operations, what is the role of TfL’s HSE Director? Do you think it is fit-for-purpose?
Keith Prince: The Report released on 29 September 2019 (http://content.tfl.gov.uk/bus-driver-fatigue-report.pdf) was dated May 2019. Why did TfL delay by 3 months the release of this report to the public?
Keith Prince: Please provide me with copies of all Tripartite Meeting Minutes which have taken place after April 2018.
Keith Prince: Did the Sandilands Incident Review Board receive and review a copy of IA 17 780 Fatigue Audit of First Group Tram Operations Limited before 15 September 2017?
